LIVE PHOTOS + REVIEW: Bunbury Music Festival // Cincinnati, OH


On Friday, May 31st though Sunday, June 2nd, the 8th annual music festival, Bunbury, was hosted in Cincinnati, Ohio. Some notable artists that headlined were Fall Out Boy, Greta Van Fleet, and The 1975. Taking place in Sawyer Point Park, about 20,000 excited fans showed up for the food, merch, and most importantly, the music. Some up-and-coming artists that I enjoyed were Lauren Sanderson, Jeremy Zucker, and The Clarks.

One of my favorite sets of the weekend was Lovelytheband’s. They played hits like “broken” and “these are my friends”, and they had the entire crowd singing and dancing along by the time their hour-long set was over. The frontman of the band, Mitchy Collins, also made very important statements in between songs. The vocalist talked about the importance of women’s and LGBTQ+ rights, and how they should be respected and protected no matter what one might believe. He also touched on the importance of openly talking about mental illness and not being afraid to ask for help. It’s easy to say that by the end of their show, they had everyone hooked.

Another band that I enjoyed was none other than The 1975. They had the last performance of the festival, and I can safely say that everyone was excited to see them live. Preforming at the Monster Stage, front man Matty Healy grabbed the attention of thousands with his soulful singing and rhythmic dance moves. While preforming popular songs like “Love It If We Made It” and “Somebody Else”, the crowd stayed energetic and engaged throughout the entirety of the set. Ending the night with a bang, the band played a crowd favorite, “The Sound”, and left everyone with tired legs and a beaming heart.


This festival was unforgettable. Seeing so many of my favorite artists in one short weekend is something I will forever hold close to my heart. From getting hype to Machine Gun Kelly to rocking out with Greta Van Fleet, there was never a dull moment at Bunbury Music Festival.
